PLAGIARISM SCREENING POLICY
- The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works. If the author(s) use other's works and/or words, then they must be cited or quoted appropriately.
- An author should not, in general, publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.
- Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work.
- All received manuscripts will go through a plagiarism screening process by the editorial board. ISI Journals Editors use Plagiarism Detector for submission.
ISI Journals editorial board recognizes that plagiarism is not acceptable and therefore establishes the following policy stating specific actions (penalties) upon identification of plagiarism/similarities in articles submitted for publication in ISI Journals will use Plagiarism Detector originality checking software as the tool in detecting similarities of texts in article manuscripts and the final version of articles ready for publication. A maximum of 20 % of similarities is allowed for the submitted papers. Should we find more than 20% of the similarity index, the article will be returned to the author for correction and resubmission.
